Pathology experts shine a light on melanoma
Richard Scolyer thinks of himself as a clinician who does research. Others might say he’s the lynchpin in a team waging war against skin cancer.
A senior staff specialist with Sydney South West Pathology Service, he is also co-director of research at the Melanoma Institute of Australia – the world’s largest melanoma treatment centre.
Richard is part of a multi-disciplinary team which, for the third time, has received a five-year grant from the National Health and Medical Research Council.
The $15 million grant will help the institute conduct large-scale genomic analyses of people with the disease.
